I'm glad he was in the dressing room for the best 4 match stretch our team has had (I rank this higher than the NZ 4-0). His tears at the end of the loss, despite that he didnt contribute at all to any wins or losses showed that he has been inducted into the team in soul and spirit.
Nazimuddin or whoever would have played deserved their chances. I'm glad everyone got a chance to prove himself, with only Riyad being successful. OK, maybe Jahirul deserves another chance at #3 before Ash gets recalled (you know its only a matter of time...I hope he finally is ready). But its time for Anamul to partner with Tamim at the top.
Eventually I hope Anamul, Asif, and Mominul will form the bedrock of a solid and balanced top/middle order with Tamim, Mushy, and Shakib + Nasir.
Bangladesh is a stronger team with Shakib al Hasan.
